“Luster and Light” creates space to reflect on the value of craft and craft-adjacent works in art museum settings. This exhibition examines works that feature specific lustrous materials to relay cultural or social symbols, often to call attention to abuses of wealth and authority.
Curated primarily from the ASU Art Museum’s permanent collections, “Luster and Light” encourages reflection on museums as systems of power and cultural production. How have they upheld hierarchical systems, such as those evidenced by their collections and exhibition histories? Visitors are asked to engage by reflecting on what they value in their own lives.
